R.I.P. Sir Christopher. Anyone who didn't know his work misses some massive films. I'll miss him.

The world is, again, a sadder place. Live long and prosper in the afterworld, Mr. Nimoy.

Coins and their metal (to bring back this old topic), one clear exception: the Kennedy 1/2 dollar.

It is an unsung hero as it had a greater percentage of silver in the mix. The '64s for sure (something like 90% silver). After, they still had 40% or something of the sort. Heck, makes 'em worth $1.50 USD!!
(for the record, I think my comic book collection is going at about the same rate). Hmmm...let's see what my 8 copies of Spawn #1 are selling for nowadays.

it could do 45's. I have no idea if there was a way to do 78's. forget the brand though

Yup, and in North America, this sort of "spirit duplicator" was known as a Ditto Machine! Ditto paper and the machine used to make the copies coexisted with the mimeograph but was invented later. It was the immediate precursor to the photocopy machine! The buzz came from the mineral spirits that were used to make the copies.

it was solvent based, the process to ink the papers. probably something like acetone or rubbing alcohol ,like a quick huff on an old fashioned glue bottle ,

There is only one right answer. Ink doesn't play into it. Perhaps in a mimeograph or a carbon copy but neither directly gave you a buzz. Only one sort of duplication did it.

My question? Name it!

Not sure what you are looking for. The smell of the ink, the chemicals, alchol ?

[guidogodoy] Tuesday, February 25, 2014 10:56:12 AM 
Mimeograph - nope. Close, but no cigar.

Had you gotten the answer, you would have won the grand prize: a real turntable! LOL! Of course, you'd have to pay s/h and any duty costs but the penny would have been included.

Record player you describe sounds like one my sister and I had. It was a box. Take the cover off to expose the arm / turntable. Played '45s natively but could do a '78 as well. HA!

I think mine is still at my mom's house. Probably worth a Canadian penny to a collector.
